Ethiopia (2010): Qualitative Research on Household Water Treatment “Whua Agar Tellel” | 12.06.10

TRaC studies conducted in 2006 and 2008 showed that the utilization rate of WhuaAgar Tellel was about 10% in Southern Nations and Nationalities people Regional State (SNNPR) and less than 7% in other regions. Moreover, less than 4% of the surveyed households had WhuaAgar Tellel in their house during the survey period. However, the TRaC data did not provide in-depth information required to design a campaign that could address issues related to Safe Water Systems (SWS). The objective of this study was to gather data for making important programmatic decisions and to design communication messages on the use of WhuaAgar Tellel and hand washing, and to give voice to caregivers of children under the age of five.
